In An Interesting Move The Miami Dolphins Release WR Patrick Turner

Patrick Turner
In a move that I found pretty surprising, the Miami Dolphins released WR Patrick Turner. Turner was finally showing some promise this preseason after not really doing much in his rookie season last year.

The Dolphins were expected by a lot of people to release either undrafted receiver Marlon Moore or undrafted receiver Roberto Wallace. Instead they got rid of Turner, though. All three players have shown a lot of promise this offseason, so it isn't like Turner is a big loss to the team.

Moore and Wallace have been surprisingly good since the Dolphins picked them up after they went undrafted.

It is a little bit ironic that the Dolphins keep two players that were not even drafted on the same day that they released QB Pat White who they drafted in the second round of last year's draft. Pat White may not have been the best draft pick, but Wallace and Moore seem to be pretty good picks after the fact.

But, back to the releasing of Turner. I honestly did not see that move coming. I thought that because Turner was finally coming around that they would be willing to keep him around. Maybe they just decided to not let him have some time to develop and just let him go.

I want to say it is kind of like Pat White's situation, but I am not sure whether Turner got as much of a chance as White did. Whether they saw him as a Pat White-type pick or not, he is gone now.

I actually kind of like the move. We get two people with a lot of potential. What's your opinion on the move? Do you like it, or do you think we should have released somebody else? Let me know in the comments.
